General & Preventive
Education and prevention are key to achieving lasting oral health and a strong smile. Dr. Rao offers comprehensive dental care, as well as patient instruction, education, and counsel. She will takes time to discuss your oral health and how important it is to your overall health.
For instance, many studies link gum disease to increased risk for heart attack, stroke, diabetes and pregnancy complications, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, certain cancers, and other health issues. If you think this has nothing to do with you, consider that 80% of Americans have some level of gum disease, and the symptoms are mild, so in many cases, the dentist is the first to recognize them. Steps can be taken to prevent gum disease and other oral health issues – namely, six-month checkups and cleanings, daily flossing and brushing, and restorative dentistry as needed.
Dr. Rao encourages all of her patients to make six-month appointments for a routine cleaning and a checkup. This gives us a great opportunity to catch any dental problems and treat them before the damage becomes severe. Our hygienists will make you feel right at home as they share tips for brushing, flossing, and homecare.
